    I just wish I could get the best of both smartphones. Galaxy s7 hardware and design and stock android. For me stock android is the only thing that I like about the 6p. Other than that I dont like the big screen size, no sd card slot

    I'm still a gigantic fan of the front facing speakers. I watch YouTube videos on my 6P over my S7E sometimes.

    I own both. For me the S7 Edge is the better phone for me. The 6P is too damn big. The edge hits that size sweet spot and has stellar battery life. Love the edge function and Samsunp Pay. Only wish the edge had the same fingerprint deal as the Nexus.

    I could care less about bloatware, not sure why it bothers some but whatever. I use Nova on both so notice no real difference. Will probable sell the 6P.

    Bloatware slows the s7E. 6P is way smoother due to how little resources it has

    Sorry, I notice no speed difference between them. If there is it's in milliseconds.

    I'm also not a power user.

    Bloat or not I'm not noticing a difference in speed from my 6P or S7 Edge. They're both very snappy.

    Both are snappy. S7E is a bit snappier most likely because of the UFS 2.0 which its random read and write speeds are miles ahead the 6P. When the both boot up, side by side for the first minute my S7 is extremely slow, while my 6P is as fast as it can be, then after about 2 minutes my S7 is on par. 6P is a lot smoother in every task, but my S7 is a tiny bit faster, almost unnoticable and doesnt make a difference in real world usage. My 6P is faster in web browsing which is wierd, but doesn't matter as it is minute

    Neither phone is perfect. Both have strong and weak points. I wish the S7 had louder / better speaker(s). I wish the 6P had smaller bezels, an SD card slot, and wireless charging. I have no complaints about the S7s performance for my uses, and like many of the extra features Samsung includes. I wish I could easily delete Samsung and carrier bloatware, though, and wish I could easily use the S7 on any carrier, like the 6P.

    There is no perfect phone. There are only phones which meet your needs, or mine, better or worse than other phones.

    Two things you can be sure of: the phone that meets your needs best won't be best for everyone. And no matter what phone you get today, there will be something newer and better in 12 months. Although maybe not much better. This technology is pretty darn good right now.

    I'm a long time Nexus user and went for the 5x which caused me a lot of buyers remorse.

    I sold it and bought an S7E although it was a toss up between that and the 6P. In the end the 6P seemed to big and to me, it is ugly in the camera area.

    Perfectly happy with the S7E and I've made it appear stock enough to keep me happy. I will be waiting to see what Google release this October though.

    Having owned every single Android and iOS flagship for the last few years... there is a HUGE speed difference we can tell.

    Take a look at the interface lagging behind iOS like crazy:
    iPhone 6S Plus Destroys Galaxy S7 In Speed Test | MacRumors Forums

    The 6P performs better but not nearly as well as iOS.

    Take note: the S7 Edge literally hesitate whenever you tap an icon, while the 6S Plus responds immediately.

    Compared to my main phone right now (S6 Edge Plus), the S7 Edge is far behind in interface speed. But my device is on 5.1.1 so it may slow to S7 Edge speeds on Marshmallow. And that would mean it's Google's fault (and Samsung's) for yet again producing bloated slow OS - AKA Android Marshmallow.

    Hopefully HTC doesnt screw it up with googles 3 year contract with them... and theres nothing wrong with the 6Ps camera. It takes way better pictures in decent and low light than my S7. And pictures are very fast when hdr isnt on. On my S7, in low light hdr adds more noise to a picture, hdr does some magical trick to my 6P. Pictures are taken very fast on my 6P in normal usage

    I know this is the S7 forum but if the 6P had ip68 water resistance and the S7s canera, would you choose the 6P over the S7/edge ?

    Posted via the Android Central App
    Nope. Had the 6P. Had three of them actually. Spent too much time trying to convince myself it was a great phone. It was far from it, especially with regards to the camera and video. And I learned stock Android is not my cup of joe. I certainly wasn't going to keep it simply because it would be updated first. Not to mention, huge phone. Uncomfortably huge. For me, S7 and S7 Edge are much better. Which is why I have them both.

    I notice no hesitation at all. While I own an iPad and it's snappy it's also boring. I will never own an iPhone. iPad works great but ios isn't my cup of tea..

    The 6P is a great phone but I have a couple of things I do not like about it. As Sangs mentioned above I'm not all that enamored with stock Android either. That aside my biggest issue is the size. It's too damn big. The S7 Edge is the sweet Spot for me, it fits in my pocket and fits in my cupholder in my vehicle. And as I mentioned before I could care less about bloatware.

    Size and stock Android are obviously matters of taste, but nobody is going to tell me the S7 and S7 Edge isn't snappy. Whatever that "video" proves is beyond me. Oh and the 6P camera and S7 camera come very close to one another in bright light photos. But go walk around while shooting video with the 6P then do so with the S7. Not. Even. Close. The S7 also takes better lowlight photos, not only because of the sensor, but because it has OIS. The 6P - in what for me was the most mind-boggling decision of the year for a phone that size - does NOT have OIS. Thus the jelly-vision videos and blurry low light pics. I really wanted to love the 6P, but in a way am glad I didn't, since the S7 and S7 Edge are the superior phones. And who gives a rat's behind about "bloatware" when you can put in a 128 or 200 gig SD card? Not to mention, you can disable all the bloat anyway. Non-issue.

    You won't notice it unless you're coming from a legit fast phone. I put the S6 Edge Plus on 5.1.1 (no encryption) next to my S7 Edge and response to taps is night and day. S6 Edge Plus blows it out of the water.

    It's not snappy. Sorry, just the real life. Hey, some people think the Mazda Miata is fast, that's great. Doesn't make it actually a fast car.

    Having had the nexus, which was great and now the s7 edge, I'm leaning towards the s7. Better Battery life and camera. The extra storage is welcome. I had issues with the 6p and the screen rotation issue. With the themes now on the s7, TouchWiz is a minor issue. Either pick is solid.

    I'd rather have both. They seem to be two different experiences. Next time the 6P goes on sale I'll pick one up.

    OK, whatever you say. Enjoy your inferior 6P.

    I would still take the S7 Edge. I have had the 6P and although it is a nice phone it's too damn big and I just am not a fan of Vanilla Android. But to each their own.
    This exactly.

    I've seen that video, and all I can say is "consider the source." MacRumors is hardly a bastion of unbiased journalism. My S7 doesn't hesitate like what they show in that video at all. Something's bogus with that comparison.

    As the owner of a Miata and a new Stingray, I agree, the Miata isn't fast. However, it's a blast to drive on a tight, winding road. A heck of a lot more fun to drive than a lot of cars that are faster. Just as a good Android phone is more satisfying in many ways than an iPhone, because it is so much more flexible, more customizable, and can simply do so much more. Even if the iPhone is faster at the more limited things it can do.

    The nexus lineup of phones are just to boring for me. The nexus lineup is just like the iPhone's they have a very simple os for people that just want a phone to be easy to use.
